BeSOMS Winter Meeting 2022

Dear Friends, dear Colleagues,

We confirm the organization of the Besoms Winter Meeting scheduled on Friday February 11th 2022 at hotel Dolce La Hulpe.

Of course, the COVID safety rules will have to be respected during the meeting (hotel rules in attached file). To facilitate the respect of those rules and the social distancing, the meeting will take place in the biggest auditorium of the hotel (500 places) and a very large exhibit hall will be used for the sponsors and the catering.

The general theme of the post-graduate course is "Bariatric revisional surgery". Below you will find the detailed scientific program and the registration form. Meeting accreditation is requested. Be aware that you must send back your registration form before January 21st to get the reduced inscription fees.
